    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 223:439-46. 2012
    ..SFST have been validated for alcohol, but their sensitivity to impairment induced by other drugs is relatively unknown. The sensitivity and specificity for Δ(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) of most oral fluid devices have been low...

    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 222:367-76. 2012
    ..In real life, however, MDMA is taken during the night, and driving may likely occur early in the morning after a night of "raving" and sleep loss...

    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 209:69-76. 2010
    ..3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) is known to improve psychomotor function and mood when measured during daytime. However, MDMA users tend to take this drug at dance parties while staying awake for prolonged periods of time...

    ..It was hypothesized that occasional users would be impaired on these tests and that heavy users would show less impairment due to tolerance...

    PLoS ONE 7:e40187. 2012
    ..In conclusion, 5-HT(2) receptors mediate positive moods induced by MDMA but not negative moods or impulsivity. 5-HT(1) receptors do not appear to be involved in MDMA effects on mood and impulse control...
